Album Review: The Crooked Fiddle Band - Moving Pieces Of The Sea

1 October 2013 | 5:34 pm | Brendan Telford

Moving Pieces Of The Sea encapsulates bizarre, square peg/round hole territory – yet is undeniably breathtaking.



Sydney's The Crooked Fiddle Band are an instrumental act that melds any number of genres and stylings into a frenetic, eerie suite of songs that could be metal for a world without electronic technology. At times archaically abrasive, obtuse, barbed, soothing, folkloric and pastoral, the troupe tell tales from across an imaginary static sea – a sense of hopeful balladry, undertaking an epic from a scorched steampunk fantasy paradigm. Moving Pieces Of The Sea encapsulates bizarre, square peg/round hole territory – yet is undeniably breathtaking.
